Woodbery-Womack Cemetery

Surveyed and photographed December 2006 by Angela Boynton Cassidy.

This cemetery has been known by several names. It has been called the Johnston Cemetery, the Hopkins
Cemetery, the Womack Cemetery, and now the sign on the fence says Woodbery-Womack Cemetery. There is
a post with a little box and information inside that says the contact person for donations to this cemetery is Frank
Miller, 3001 Lang Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32303, 850-562-0039.

The Woodbery-Womack Cemetery is about 2 miles north of Old Salem near Havana. Travel State
Road 12 west out of Havana for about one mile, turn right on Salem Road (Hwy. 159) and go about 2 miles.
Just as the road makes a long curve to the left, the cemetery is on the right side of the road. It has a chain
link fence around it and is clearly visible. It is about 3 acres in size, with lots of room between the stones. It
is a family cemetery.

broken stone, Name broken off but handwritten dates remain, 1863-1927 (this was not on the Mormon Tomb Index in 1957, so it may be a "rescued" stone from another cemetery or either it was not visible at that time. This cemetery has only recently been cleared of trees and underbrush.)
